The big reveal finally happens!

 The moment you've all been waiting for!
My stitchery comes home again!!


Do you remember my stitchery project when it was almost naked?
Well that was way back in June.
Patty, Linda, Nathalie and Margaret were also playing, cleverly crafting getting their own stitchery projects ready to send on adventures too.
Well I added a few more pieces to mine and sent it off to America to start it's world wide journey... 

 

My stitchery visited with Patty in July
where she added one of her famous felted hearts.



Then it went to stay with Nathalie  for a short while in August....



where she added some fine words and a wee "home" with lots of pinkness!




Then off it went to spend some September time with Linda, where busy hands took over and 
created a girl stitching! 





Then finally it flew to Switzerland in October to pay a call on Margaret,






where lots of fabricy and buttony goodness was added....




...and a teeny tiny heart!



 And here is my beautifully crafted stitchery...
Thanks girls! I love how you all took such great care of it and 
I love 
all you added!

It has become a very special treasure.



Check out the others stitchery projects on their blogs - 
the links are all listed on the side under QB5.

Enjoy your week!

Simply beautiful Carole. I've enjoyed seeing the others too - just Margaret's to see now.
What a wonderful project and the results are stunning x

Your lovely stitchery wasn't naked at all when I recieved it Carole, I Love the bit you did in the upper left hand corner and your little book (that is not in the photo) on the lower right is such a special addition too!
I've pretty much used up that vintage pink hat netting now...must be on the look out for a new OLD hat to pull apart LOL
Such a fun swap wasn't it!
Amazing creativity you gals have!

Linda said...

Yeah....I'm with Patty....your piece started out incredible...we do not get as much credit as you are giving us. haha It really was a pure joy to work on...if not a little intimidating. Yes, put the book on there in the bottom left corner and take another picture. Yes, I'm giving directions again.

Margaret said...

Your stitchery took my breath away on it's last stop before home, just beautiful!! I love the finished piece soooo much!!

Nathalie Thompson said...

Your piece was very hard to mail on-- I could have easily kept it! It has turned out beyond stunning!

IF YOU EVER tire of it, I am sure one of us would GLADLY take it off your hands. ;)

Can't wait to see Margaret's!

Carole, isn't this such an exquisite piece of stitchery, each corner has it's own special charm.
Will you be framing it?

Magpie's Mumblings said...

A treasure indeed! It's always scary to send something like this out into the world wondering if the postal 'gods' will treat it kindly. Your friends all did incredible additions!!

Janet Ghio said...

This is so wonderful. What size is this piece? And what were the "rules" when sending it around? What a great RR idea!

An Evolving Artist @ Swallowcliffs.blogspot.com/ said...

What a fun RR! I would love to try this with a group. Did you organize it?

Lisa said...

Oh how gorgeous! You know I'm going to want to see it in real life.
